I listened to this on audiobook and then bought the Kindle book version. Although statistics change from year to year, truth does not. I think Randy Alcorn provided a well-organized and persuasive argument for the pro-life position. I realize that this is a "hot button" topic that people feel very passionately about on both sides, but Mr. Alcorn presents a compassionate inoffensive explanation of many facts of abortion that are difficult to argue against. I think that every pro-life advocate should educate themselves as much as possible and this book is a great tool toward that end. Also, I encourage every pro-choice advocate to keep an open mind while reading or listening to this book. God Bless.

This book is very good about knowing the issues involve with the Pro-Life world view. Randy Alcorn is a great author and his more complete book ProLife Answers To ProChoice Arguments is excellent. A must read.

I'm about half-way through and I am more outraged than ever at our society!

This book is great - it looks at abortion through science and facts and takes arguements from both sides, compares them, and let's you decide what is right.

All of the sources are in the back!

Quick, easy read! :)

Format: Paperback
Why Pro-Life? is an excellent book that answers questions about the Pro-Life position. This book is small, only about one hundred pages, but covers plenty of information.

Randy Alcorn attempts to make an argument for the Pro-Life position without using the Bible, and he does a stellar job. Using statistics, scientific research, historical notes, and psychological findings, Alcorn presents a convincing case against abortion.

While not exhaustive, Why Pro-Life? covers just about every question you could have about the abortion debate. From moment of conception to adoption resources, Alcorn has touched it all. I especially liked the grace and compromise he showed to victims of rape, incest, and those with medical complications.

A small book that can be passed along, Why Pro-Life? is an excellent book.

Although Randy Alcorn is a Bible-believing Christian, he doesn't depend on the Bible to show that abortion is wrong. He documents science as recognizing that life begins at conception, and he uses logic to show that if it's wrong to take the life of three year old child, it's equally wrong to take the life of a three month old unborn baby. He presents facts and logic for nonbelievers who would not respond to a Biblical message. But he presents a Christian message to those who have been involved in abortion, whether it is a mother who aborted her child, a man who convinced his wife or girlfriend have an abortion, or someone who influenced women by their strong advocacy for abortion. He shares the Salvation message. He quotes Scripture that abortion is a sin, one of many sins committed by all people. He covers the need to repent and ask for forgiveness, and he describes the grace and mercy of God and Christ paying off our sins. He talks directly to Christians to answer a question he gets often: isn't pro-life activism a distraction from the Great Commission? Alcorn points out that the greatest commandments are to love God wi th all our hearts, minds, and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Saving lives certainly qualifies as loving our neighbors. Also the Great Commission has two parts: making disciples in all the world and doing all that Jesus commanded. Jesus commanded us to care for the needy and vulnerable. Women considering abortion and their unborn babies at risk of death are definitely vulnerable. Alcorn isn't content to leave reader's philosophically pro-life. The last chapter of the book includes dozens of ways to get involved, from becoming informed enough to be able to persuade others to running for office. When we realize the magnitude of this problem, surely all right-thinking people will stand up for unborn children, individuals with disabilities, the elderly, and anyone considered unwanted in our society.
